Without having tested every package, they should all work.
The issues one might encounter when using them together
with the standard userland is maybe with glibc and other libraries.
Not sure what version openwrt uses.
Kernel version is 2.6.32-hpc which essentially is same as openwrt 2.6.32 for nanonote.

Ive kept my development with sd-micro booting so maybe its broken
for nand booting? That said, school is doing a good job at keeping me busy
but will check it as soon as I can.

The focus has early on been to create a solid repository, which was
on my part somewhat stupid since the kernel and userland should have
taken first priority.

Ive kept linux-hpc.git branch v2.6.32-hpc updated with latest kernel patches
from openwrt. In openembedded Ive slowly created the different packages needed
for successful compilation, the kernel used is compiled from the v2.6.32-hpc branch.
Using openembedded it now runs from start to finish in building the initial userland.
The progression now is to adjust things we want inside the userland and the settings for
necessary packages.

I see no reason why xorg shouldnt work on the nanonote. Havent tried it but
we got it on other devices.

Should be software fpu I believe.

Im away during the coming week (clinical period in school), but will be back
after that and will then have time to update all the information on site (and also do testing).
